How can I check my that my electric back up heat on my climate master geothermal is working properly?

I have a climate master geothermal well to well unit with electric backup heat. My system has not been keeping up in the winter. Air works great but the heat will not warm the house.

It sounds like the coils are fine if you are getting heat. They are likely shutting down from overheating after being on for awhile. Check your filter and overall air flow to make sure it's adequate.

You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

Turn thermostat switch to 'cool' setting. It's a 'heat pump' and is in the heat mode.

SOURCE: Smell of electrical burning.. no more heat in house!

First of all keep this in mind.
You will need to locate the wires that got hot. If you can't or if your not sure, I suggest that you call a service company. If they ok the unit and it catches on fire after wards, their insurances will cover you unit and or home if god forbid it burns. This is to be on the safe side.
Now, this is where I would look. Your element should be on it's on circuit. There should be a disconnect within reach of the air handler. Some are fused and some are not. The wires that got hot enough for you to smell them should show signs of being hot like the plastic will be melted around the wire. You said that the heater was running. Was this the first time you have used it this year? If so, are you sure it was not the dust burning off the elements? They will smell like something burning when you first turn them on each year. Although if your sure you smelled wires getting hot, please continue looking for just that. Keep in mind that the elements have 220 volts coming to them. It comes into the unit and go to a switch or relay. From there the power goes to the elements and then to a neutral. These are the wires you will need to pay the most attention to. Good luck.

Underfloor Radiant Heating works great with a Geothermal Heat Pump


Radiant floor heating has been the standard for comfort and efficiency for many years. The feeling of having a warm floor under your bare feet is priceless. Rolling on the floor while playing with your children or grandchildren is great when it is cold outside and the floor is pleasantly warm.

Geothermal Heat Pumps usually are associated with hot air heating and air conditioning systems. If you live in a climate that very seldom needs air conditioning, then you need to concentrate more on the heating. There is a super way to use geothermal technology to give you very efficient and comfortable heating. Underfloor radiant heating can very easily be incorporated with a geothermal heat pump to give you the best of both comfort and efficiency.

Here are some thing’s that you do have to consider before deciding on a system like this.
You will need to drill a few wells to extract the heat from the ground.
Piping must be installed in the wells correctly for the system to work properly.
You will need a heat pump designed for hot water heating.
You can not use a heat pump that is designed for hot air use and convert it for radiant heating.
The radiant heat design must be designed to use water temperatures that are cooler than that of many radiant heat systems.
The maximum temperature design should be 130 degrees F.
To get this kind of design to work correctly for you, you will need to use good quality heat plates and insulated under the heat plates.
By following these guidelines I have designed a number of radiant heating systems that have proven to heat houses very comfortably at temperatures well below zero.

If you decide on installing this type of system make sure that your installer knows exactly what they are doing. This type of system requires many things to be done exactly right, so that the water flows will allow the system to work correctly. The piping on the well side is extremely critical so that it uses all the wells equally. On the house side the piped using a primary/secondary piping scheme. Pumps and pipe sizes need to be able to give you very high flow rates so that the temperature drop is kept to ten degrees or less. When working with these low temperatures the piping and pumping becomes so much more critical.

By using these principles you can combine two very great heating types and can have a very good heating system that will perform very well for many years. The main drawback with this type of system is that you do not have the ability to get much cooling from this system. This is probably the only drawback of this type of system. It would be wondeful if there was a geothermal unit that was heating only. The elimination of the reversing valve would be a great cost savings and a plus overall. This system is best suited for cooler climates that require little or no air conditioning.

Geothermal Heat Pumps And Radiant Heating - An Absolutely Fabulous Combination

Radiant floor heating has been the comfort and efficiency standard for many years. The feeling of a warm floor under your feet is priceless. Romping on the floor while playing with the children is great when the snow is blowing and the floor is pleasantly warm.

Geothermal heating has also been known for it's efficiency also. The drawback to hot air geothermal heating has been the air temperatures that are cooler than normal hot air heating systems. By combining the two types of systems you can have very comfortable heat and efficiency at the same time.

To start, most tstats pull straight off of its base, or pull away from the bottom and lift from the top. Yours should be a touch screen and pulls straight out. Hopefully the installer secured the base well enough to the wall. At the tstat that has dehum. capability, see if it has a terminal marked D or H for dehum. If so, there is a wire connected. Now at the 1 you would like to replace, remove tstat from base, and check the number of wires you have available. If you don't have a "spare" wire for the new tstats' H(humidity) terminal, it won't work out because you'll need an extra wire. Also the existing tstat may have that option, but isn't configured for dehumidification. Might check that too. It is possible to add dehumidification to any and all zones depending on available wires. Also, at the geothermal, this "extra" wire needs to be connected.

My 2004 jeep heater just stopped working one day. changed out blower and resistor, but didnt fix the prob. went onlilne found out how to do the code reading thing, some howmade heat come back on, BUT will...


Automatic or manual climate control ? Looking at a wiring diagram an checking power an grounds an current draw is the correct way to test electrical circuits ,not guessing an replacing parts .
Why ???? High resistance problem probably . Volage drop testing the circuit. Your's has blower motor resistor or blower motor controller . module ?
